Day Twelve: Weight Loss God’s Way

Day Twelve: Weight Loss God’s Way

I love to hear from my kids. I love to hear them tell me about their days. I love to hear them tell me what they have learned or a funny story that went down that day. I even love hearing their fears so together we can get after God’s truth that overcomes their fears. But I admit…I don’t love hearing from them when they are arguing, complaining, or whining about something. And more often than not it’s about something pretty darn insignificant.

Day Eleven: Weight Loss God’s Way


Calories in. Calories out. Ugh…if I have to hear that one more time in my life it will be too many. Yes, it’s true. If you want to lose weight, consume fewer calories daily and spend more. If you want to maintain a healthy weight, spend as many calories daily as you consume. Yadda…yadda…yadda.

Day Ten: Weight Loss God’s Way


Workout of the Day (WOD)

Do you remember the scripture or scriptures you were reading about God’s love? If not…get out your bible or your phone and find them once again.

TRAIN: Find a piece of paper, preferably a 3×5 card. Get a pen and write down a piece of scripture on that card. Take your time. Write slowly. There is power in the written word. Once finished, place that card on the ground in front of you and do the following workout, step by step.

Day Nine: Weight Loss God’s Way


See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland. Isaiah 43:19

Oh, dear Lord, I long for you to make streams in the wasteland of my heart – to renew my love for you, for my husband, and to ignite my love for myself, to bless us financially and to strengthen our hearts for you, for each other for as long as live in this world.

Day Seven: Weight Loss God’s Way

Day Seven: Weight Loss God’s Way

Before this getting “healthy and whole” train picks up too much steam, it is really important to me that I tell you…GOD LOVES YOU! GOOD NEWS!! GOD LOVES YOU! He really, really, really loves YOU!

Your whole life is about God’s great big love for you. If God’s children lived from the reality of how much they are loved by their Father in heaven, I am convinced we would never hunger or thirst for anything else. Everything we hunger and thirst for, besides God, is just a cheap substitute for God’s love. It’s a momentary lover that leaves us feeling cheap and used in the morning.

Day Six: Weight Loss God’s Way



I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Ephesians 3:17-20
